Betty E. Davis Obituary
"Granny D"
Betty Elinor Anderson Davis, beloved angel to her family and friends, left her frail body and passed peacefully through the veil into the next life on March 14, 2014 in South Jordan Utah, at the age of 92. What a long-awaited and joyous reunion, especially with her Savior Jesus Christ and her sweetheart M. Melvin (Mel) Davis, Jr! A faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, Betty served in numerous teaching and leadership positions, including 3 times as Relief Society President. Her passion was helping others, especially her family. Betty possessed the greatest of all gifts, CHARITY, which was energetically demonstrated in serving, sharing her happy spirit, and advocating the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She received special joy from volunteering at the LDS Church Office building, Welfare Square and as a missionary with her husband, in Nauvoo, Illinois. Betty loved to walk outside for exercise, care for her grandchildren and make Swedish pancakes.
Betty was born May 25, 1921 and married her sweetheart, Mel, on August 29, 1941. They were sealed in the Los Angeles LDS Temple in 1956. She leaves four children, Diane L. (Gary) Bottger, Gordon M. (Janile) Davis, Sheila M. (Robert, deceased) Timmerman and Naeme W. (Michael) Mower, plus many grandchildren and great grandchildren, who lovingly called her "Granny D". Although she was raised in Seattle, Washington and lived a short time in Virginia, Betty considered the Salt Lake Valley her home.
Special gratitude to Sheila, her daughter and caregiver. A viewing for family and close friends will be held at the Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 S. State Street, Murray, from 11:00 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. Following the viewing, a graveside service will take place at the Murray City Cemetery, 5600 S. Vine Street.
Betty will be surely missed, but her example and love will always be with us.
